Easy and Beautiful Process Art Idea
This No Time for Flashcards post details the process of creating art from a salad spinner! You can make it fall related by having your cardstock paper cut into leaf shapes (IFLS librarians: remember to avail yourself of the die cut machine capabilities, housed at Phillips Public Library!). Use liquid tempra paint in a variety of colors (hopefully ones that will blend well together). Have kids squirt it on the paper in whatever pattern they want. Then they can spin the salad spinner for a few seconds, and take out the beautiful leaves. For a better description (with photos), see the post.
